What a beautiful and comfortable home.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the riad. Absolutely no regrets about this booking. The food prepared at the home was delicious and we were able to enjoy the meals in the comfort and majesty of this lovely space. I am grateful for the service, the comforts of this home, and the assistance we received in touring Marrakech. If I am ever fortunate enough to return, the only change I would want to make is to enjoy a longer stay at this riad.
Loved having you as guests... Thank you!
Calm in the Medina
Quiet and calm. Great service from everyone involved.
Thank you for your stay and your kind review! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay...
Wonderful Home in Marrakech
We would highly recommend this 3br/2bath home in the Médina (old town) of Marrakech. The location is a quick walk to the main square and the souks (markets). The upstairs sun deck is great for relaxing on. The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable.
Halima, the housekeeper, was a great resource even though we did not speak French or Arabic. We used google translate and she was very patient and kind. She helped us by arranging a private tour guide (we loved Nordean) and a driver (Mohammed) for day trips. We enjoyed our day trips to Essauria and the Ourika Valley. In addition Halima can provide an amazing daily breakfast for 3 Euros per person or a multicourse dinner for 15 Euros per person. We had a few of Halima’s dinners, plus breakfast daily. Other evenings we dined at nearby restaurants. Our two favorites were Chez Brahim and Naranj. There was so much to see and do in Marrakech. Our trip to Morocco exceeded our expectations!
Thank you for your nice comment.
We wish to have you in our house for your next trip.
Beautiful Riad in a Great Location and Wonderful Hospitality
My friends and I had a wonderful time staying at this charming house in Marrakesh’s Medina. The house it self was beautiful and cozy with plenty of room for all 5 of us. We were even able to make a fire in the fireplace. We really enjoyed the terrace on the roof with lounge chairs and a great view. The house was well situated it the Medina within easy walking distance to the main square and other tourist locations but far enough into the Medina that it was quiet and away from the bustle. Halima was an excellent hostess, who helped us settle in and made us several meals. Her meals were well worth the additional cost and some of the best food we had in Marrakesh. Thank you!

Lovely, centrally located, worth your while
We stayed here for several nights and everything was pretty much perfect. With two couples staying in the larger rooms, we had the run of the Riad. We arranged a pick up from the airport through the property owner, Aurelie, and everything went smoothly even though our flight was several hours late. When we arrived, Halima- the truly wonderful staff/ cook/ housekeeper- had prepared an amazing meal for us, fed us on the rooftop terrace, and then allowed us to go crash into our respective beds. We highly recommend eating the meals Halima prepares- it's an additional charge, but very affordable and truly some of the best food we had in Morocco. In addition, the Riad is very close to the main square of the Medina- well located for long winding walks through the many close streets of shops and restaurants that form the heart of Marrakech. The accommodations are lovely in every way- do stay here!
Lovely traditional house in the Medina’s heart
The Derb Dabachi must be one of the craziest roads in the world. The main route from the West to East side of the mid-Medina (and vice versa), in places it is only three metres wide, and packed with shops, street vendors, and farmers bringing their daily produce in to sell. In the evening it’s like letting out time from a major football game, and you dodge mopeds, carts and donkeys to make your way through.
In the middle of this you turn off into a dark alley, then go left, left and left, past kids playing alley football, and you find a door next to the Riad Boussa. Up a flight of stairs and you reach a gorgeous living room, with a small kitchen, two double bedrooms and a bathroom to the side. Another flight of stairs and there is a fine bedroom which opens out to a beautiful roomy terrace, with views of the Marrakech skyline.
The terrace really is the place to be, to lounge with a book and a drink in the shade looking out to a clear, warm sky. Despite the nearby Dabachi it’s very quiet, apart from the occasional sounds of the call to prayer, the distant drums of the Jamaa el-fna, and alley football. The housekeeper Halima is wonderful. She cooks a sumptuous breakfast for €3 a head, which she will serve on the terrace should you wish it. I would also recommend her 3 course dinners at €12 per head, some of the best food we ate in Marrakech. The place is an oasis of calm within chaos. I would thoroughly recommend this property.
Thank you for your stay and your kind review! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you again in our house, Douiria Jdida, for another stay in Marrakesh. Halima & Aurelie
Our house is located in the center of Marrakesh Medina, 8 min walk from Jemaa el Fna square.
